The Shotgun Waltz By Benjamin Blake
October 3, 2013 Comments Off on The Shotgun Waltz By Benjamin Blake
So it’s all come down to this . . . Pacing the stained carpet in a cheap motel room, clutching my trusty shotgun in a death grip. I swore to myself that I would never let it end this way: overflowing ashtray on the bedside table, neon light bleeding through the thin curtains. Any minute now, any goddamn minute.
